This guide will show you how to do a perfect dodge in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (BotW). Read on to learn how to properly execute a Perfect Dodge and perform a Flurry Rush!
A Perfect Dodge is a technique that, when done successfully, dodges an enemy attack and slows down time in battle, enabling you to perform a series of attacks, called a Flurry Rush. Just like Parrying, it gives a tremendous advantage in battle.
To perfectly dodge an attack, follow these steps below:

The timing between the enemy attack and the dodge is essential gaining the upperhand in battle. Dodging the attack too fast or too slow will give you a disadvantage in battle. You might lose a heart in the process, or you could even end up dead.
A Perfect Dodge will activate if you correctly dodge an attack, and this also means that the direction of your dodge is important. The correct direction of the dodge will depend on the type of the enemy's attack. If an enemy attacks vertically, you must dodge horizontally to perform a Flurry Rush, and vice versa for a horizontal attack.
To lessen the risk of being damaged when dodging an attack, shielding is the safest thing to do. It will prevent you from losing hearts, as well as getting staggered by the attack. Save up some shield and fearlessly dodge all the enemies' attacks!
Perfect Dodge will only activate on melee attacks. It is better to Parry or simply run when faced with a ranged enemy.
Keep in mind that most weapons have durability and will break after certain amount of usage. Nothing is worse than having your weapon break right in the middle of a Flurry Rush against a powerful enemy like a Lynel, so be sure that your weapon isn't near breaking before trying to activate a flurry rush!
To prevent the weapon from losing its durability, be sure to stop your Flurry Rush attacks when the enemy's HP has reached 0.
